Redrum- Power Corrupts LP Rough Mix w/different vocals xfer from master tape January 1989

There’s kind of a long story behind this one, and this is only my memory of it..
After the first day of recording the LP, we ran off a cassette of the rough mix to listen to. Vonni (was it only Vonni?) thought that the vocals were too clean, and wanted them re-recorded. I thought they sounded great, they sound exactly like how Carlos sang back then. So back in the studio they went, to “dirty up” the vocals and release the CD that you might have heard. I think this version is FAR SUPERIOR. Too bad it is just a rough mix.
Side note- listen until the very end- there is a BONUS cover that Vonni sings. The guy who laughs when he starts singing is me.

Redrum- Club Me, Sacramento Ca. 1/15/89 Master Soundboard Audio Only Thrash Metal

So I got back in touch with Bobby Whitright a couple of days ago and he was looking for a specific Redrum show. Since I was listening to this one, I decided to post it as well. Taped from the soundboard on a high bias cassette. Club Me became the Cattle Club shortly after this show. Great covers of Misfits and Iron Maiden toward the end of the set. The mix settles down and while it is imperfect, it ain’t bad.

Redrum- Merrie Melodies Record Store, Lodi Ca. 6/18/88 Sacramento Thrash Metal

So this one is kind of a long story so I will try to keep it short. I used to manage Redrum and they were playing an outdoor show in Lodi on a Saturday. I had to work saturdays so I worked half day, then raced over there to see them play. Well, I did not have a chance to eat… and there was a lot of free beer at the show… so unfortunately you get to see some of the hijinks after the set. Please note that CARLOS is manning/directing the camera during most of the after-show stuff.

Redrum- 4 song Demo 1987 or so xfer from band archive audio tape Sacramento Thrash Metal

This tape is a bit of a mystery. I managed the band when they got back together in 1987, and I do not remember this demo at all. In addition, the track listing on the cover does not match the tape. It does start out with Frontline (as listed), but the second song is Death in Disneyland which is not even shown in the track listing. This version of DiD is one I don’t recall hearing before- it sounds like a studio demo, but not from either of the 2 studio demos made in 1987/88. All other versions of the songs, except Death in Disneyland, appear to be from the “Power Corrupts” demo session.

From Mike Parisi’s collection

EDIT: Mike let me know that this is not the Evil’s End demo, which was only CD tracks anyway. This has the Metal Massacre IX track plus Power Corrupts demo tracks.

Redrum- Oasis Ballroom, Sacramento Ca 12/29/85 xfer from Master Soundboard audio tape

I’m back! Man, that was a painful PC transition. Trying to figure out how to manipulate my itunes library.xml file at 1am this morning was AWESOME.

Anyway, this was probably one of the most influential shows I ever attended. I was friends with the band so I was carrying my boom box into The Oasis to record the show. Someone from the band (Vonni or Mike I think) asked “why don’t you record through the soundboard”? I was amazed- you can actually do that? So I ran out to the car and grabbed a D90 and taped over The Faction’s Darkroom album (sorry guys).
After the show, I popped it into my car cassette deck and was floored. I had no idea you could get such good sound from a board tape! So, you are all to blame for these 10,000 tapes now.
Funny side note: years later, I was doing something and absent mindedly let the other side of the tape play until the end. I discovered that the start of the set (dance of death) was also on the end of the other side of the tape! So, that is here for pretty much the first time ever for people to hear.
